I have a new 6” grinding wheel, with a center hole that is nowhere near an inch in diameter, that wants to shake the grinder off of the bench. Is it possible to balance this wheel with the OneWay balancing system ??
Any suggestions or recommendation. Thanx !

Better buy a new wheel in my opinion they explode like bombs when they decide to die on you.Too dangerous to fart about with in any case a wheel is cheaper than the device you plan to buy to rectify the fault.My3 Pennies worth.Alistair

I use and really like the Oneway system:

However, I had a wheel that wasn’t nearly as bad as yours and it was too much for the Oneway to fix. In talking with Oneway, they said that it’s possible to add more balancers (they’re just ordinary bolts/nuts) but they don’t recommend it since at that point the wheel is obviously defective and should be replaced. I’d return it or simply toss it. Bad things can happen with a defective wheel. Trust me, I know …

One thing I don’t understand: Why do you mention the hole size?

Yep. I yelled at ya. Do you think that you’ll look good with a section of grinding wheel stickin’ out of your head?
